The Rhyming Bus is an app designed for use by individuals needing practice or assistance with rhyming to help build reading skills and speech development. The app, designed by a speech therapist, works by having users board the rhyming bus, 6 characters wait at the bus stop, but only those with a word that rhymes with the word the bus displays can get on. Users can drag the characters onto the bus, and when there are 4 rhyming words on the bus before it drives off. 

Key features include:

  • each game has 4 words to match to the target word
  • three levels of difficulty means the app can be used as the child's ability improves
  • choose to have a symbol + text, or text only, depending on the child's level
  • uses Widget symbols which are used in schools across the world, designed to support literacy
  • choose how many buses to play in each game (5, 10 or 15)
  • switch between New York or London streetscapes for added fun
  • tap on each word to hear it spoken aloud for added help
  • hear the words in either a British or American accent 
  • reward animations at the end of each game
  • illustrated report at the end of each game, allows users to view the errors and success
  • reports can be shared with teachers, parents, or speech therapists
